Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: 1977, a new look

If the question is a truly all-awful show from '77, the answer is "no such animal exists."

Meanwhile, here's another gem from '77 that may get lost in the sea of great shows surrounding it:

Oh, and just to stir the pot--the most OVERRATED show of 1977 is also one of the most popular: 2/26/77.

Everyone likes "firsts" and they play Terrapin for the first time and start the show w/it, but that doesn't mean it's a good Terrapin. The words are messed up, and it doesn't carry half the power and effortlessness of many a later version. It's not that 2/26 is a BAD show, it's just that it doesn't deserve the 5 star rating it gets.

Grendle,

I always like hearing from you. I haven't been around for awhile, but since you're here, I'll post.

2-26 is overrated but it is a nice show to listen to. 4/23 is good but too many breaks in the music.

Just my 2bits.

hello deadmax!

4-23-77 has my new fave Scarlet>Fire, but yeah, there are quite a few breaks....check out that 5-13-77 show, though...it's a killer!
